Im affraid i havent done anything to the layout, :oops: havent touched it for ages.
I got stuck into getting my reef tank setup finished, and now the good weather is here im out flying helis again :lol:

Im even toying with the idea of selling the whole lot!.............

Where do you live :D
Seriously though dont sell it too quickly.
I toyed with the idea of selling my N gauge layout a while ago but I got back into it again,I have even started a little layout for my dad and I am still thinking about building another layout along similar lines to this one.
Keep it safe for those winter months when you dont want to go outside :D

I've similarly completely stalled with Hollycroft over the last few weeks.

The tank is amazing. I can't even keep goldfish, sadly!
cheers, Mark.

Hi Mark,

Thanks, once the coral frags have got 6 months growth it should look rather nice :D

Sorry to hear you have stopped lately, you gave it a good long seeing to though :lol: you wizzed past me.
I think its the weather, its nice to be outside in good weather, also doing the same thing all the time gets boring, you need a break now and then.

Im imagining a set of drums in the spot the railways is in! Hehehe

Regards
Barks :D

Hehe, I'm afraid 1 foot : 12 inch modelling has gotten in the way of the trains for me.

Decorating, gardens... My shed collapsed and my lawn mower blew up.

I'll get round to the layout again.... For now there's that guitar in the lounge.
cheers, Mark.

why do have to sell everything??

it seems a shame that you have spent 6 years and god only nows how much money making it!

would buy it but cant 4 2 reasons

1. i model '00'
2. WHERE THE HECK WOULD IT GO!!!

you have done some good work on the layout if only I can do my railway that quickly and well! I have been making mine for about 7 years and its still nowhere near done!

regards
